Faculty Club Chairman Jamie Harper (Art History) normally presents these awards. This year he skipped out and asked me to do it. Thanks Jamie.
One member was wearing a blazer, and claimed he was dressed as Jamie. I noted that there were no leather elbow patches. Fail.
Another professor showed a cell phone picture of themself and 2 identical triplets all dressed alike. Sorry, but all must be present to win.
So I gave the award to our 2 bartenders, who had made an effort. Since we have no budget for awards I slipped them the maximum tip on a colleague’s credit card while he was in the bathroom.
Immediately afterwards 2 people showed up with costumes that made me tremble in fear. But they’d missed Jamie’s 6PM submission deadline. Desk reject.
The Faculty Club provides a welcoming environment for all UO faculty and guests, Wed and Th from 5-8PM. Enter through the Art Museum’s front door.
